Team News

Arsenal
Crystal Palace
  • Mikel Arteta is without Takehiro Tomiyasu and Mohamed Elneny as both are with the Japan and Egypt national teams for the Asian Cup and Africa Cup of Nations, respectively.
  • Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus will be assessed, but Jurrien Timber, Thomas Partey and Fabio Vieira miss out.
  • Jordan Ayew is on international duty with Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.
  • Rob Holding misses the meeting with his former employers due to injury but should return later this month, as will Joel Ward and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.
  • Matheus Franca may deputise for the injured Michael Olise on the right.

Prediction

  • Arsenal are looking to get their campaign back on track and Mikel Arteta will hope the break in play will allow his players to re-focus on the task at hand. The Gunners have won just one of their last seven in all competitions, and lost their last three on the bounce.
  • Crystal Palace were knocked out of the FA Cup in midweek, and defeat at Everton means they have won just one of their last 10. The Eagles lost their last game at the Emirates but have lost just one of their last five trips to the Gunners.
  • Arsenal have lost their last two home games but should get their season back on track here.

  • I expect Roy Hodgson to be sacked in the next week or so. Steve Cooper former Forest boss to take over.

  • Arsenal is really doing well this season. I saw some Arsenal stats on one-versus-one.com which pointed out that they will be at the very top of the table by the end of the season. Artega is doing an amazing job and has a great feel for the best players.

  • @Pedro111 one-versus-one.com How about a football data platform ?

  • Home win

  • @eastend1 one-versus-one.com 足球数据平台怎么样?

  • Arteta took Arsenal to Dubai for their winter break for a warm-weather training camp.They returned few days ago and should be raring to go and get the much needed 3 points.

  • Arsenal 3-0

  • Palace have scored only 11 goals in 11 EPL away matches this season.

  • curse of the early KO, Palace draw or win
